  • Patent number: 10647651
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process for the production of 1,6-difunctionalized hexane derivatives from 1,3-diunsaturated hydrocarbons, preferably butadiene, wherein a hydroformylation with carbon monoxide and hydrogen is performed in the presence of an at least dihydric alkanol and during the hydroformylation the temperature is increased. The reaction yields the acetals of the 1,6-hexanedial derivatives which are isolated and further reacted to obtain the desired 1,6-difunctionalized hexane derivatives, in particular 1,6-hexanediamine, 1,6-hexanediol and adipic acid.

  • Patent number: 10618873
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process for preparing C4-C15 lactams, in which a C1-C10-alkyl nitrite is reacted with a C4-C15-cycloalkane and is illuminated with a light-emitting diode during the reaction. This forms a C4-C15-cyclohexanone oxime which is then converted further to a C4-C15 lactam; the C1-C10 alcohol formed is recycled into the preparation of the C1-C10-alkyl nitrite.

  • Publication number: 20180346413
    Abstract: A process for preparing an isocyanate compound is provided. The process includes a step of reacting an amine compound A having at least one primary amino group with CO2 and an organotin compound S having at least one radical OR3 attached to the tin atom of the organotin compound to convert at least one of the primary amino groups in the amine compound A into a carbamate group to obtain a carbamate compound C; a step of cleaving the carbamate groups in the obtained carbamate compound C to form the isocyanate compound and an alcohol R3OH, without separation of the tin compounds; and a step of obtaining the isocyanate compound. The radical R3 is a C-bound organic radical of 1-30 carbon atoms with 1, 2, or 3 carbon atoms optionally replaced by oxygen or nitrogen.
